In a tirade at the European Commission’s threat to block the export of the AstraZeneca vaccine to Britain, TalkRADIO host James Whale said “they should all get the boot” including Ursula von der Leyen and called for the formation of a new European alliance led by Britain. Following the temporary suspension of the vaccine in a number of European Union states, he stressed the EU have “wasted” the AstraZeneca vaccine so “it’s no use anymore”. Co-host Ash Gould added that scientists should investigate how many people have died as a result of the temporary suspension.

Ms von der Leyen’s remarks came after multiple EU countries suspended the use of the Oxford-developed AstraZeneca jab over concerns of blood clots.
The temporary ban came despite reassurances from the European Medicine Agency and the World Health Organisation that blood clots were not caused by the vaccine.
